I’m spoiled. Catching in flight Spoonbill photographs is easier in the Lowcountry. While we have plenty of Palm Trees there is open space too. Spoonbill love to fly through Florida palms, and so hard for a clear shot.

This Roseate Spoonbill was thankfully moving between the Palms. Gathering sticks has started.

We were lucky to have great clear days and took advantage of them. No sooner did we pack up and head for home… the rains came back. These marshes are not that far from the Lowcountry so the ‘weather app’ is a good (not perfect) guide for us.
